Parents, grandparents, siblings, extended family and friends who have experienced the loss of a child are invited to attend the 18th annual
Worldwide Candle Lighting service sponsored by the Otsego County Chapter of Compassionate Friends.
The service will be held from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 10, at the First Congregational Church of Christ at 215 S. Center Ave.
Beginning at 6:30 p.m., the service will include music and selected readings. At 7 p.m., candles will be lit in remembrance of our children,
along with thousands of others across the world.
If interested parties cannot attend in person, you can join them in spirit and light a candle at the same time.
This special candle lighting creates a 24-hour “wave of light” moving from time zone to time zone, connecting people around the globe.
Bring a picture of your loved one to share with others attending this remembrance ceremony.
There is a gathering for refreshments and visiting afterward.
